Wins for Rossa and Tir na nÓg

Antrim Division Two camogie

Rossa 1-14 Dunloy 3-6

Loughgiel 2-4 Tír na nÓg 4-9

TÍR na nÓg are now the only unbeaten team in the top two divisions after they beat Loughgiel in last evening’s Division Two clash in Fr Healy Park.

Although Michaela Hegarty goaled in the opening minutes, Loughgiel hit back with goals from Therese McKinley and Meadhbh McCormick and the home side held a narrow lead up to the 24th minute when a second goal from Hegarty put Tír na nÓg into a lead they never subsequently relinquished.

Ciara Devine grabbed a third goal for the Randalstown side just before the break and they led by 3-4 to 2-2 at the turnover. They controlled the second half and Emily Falloon’s goal on 40 minutes sealed the win to put them into the Division Two league final.

The other Division Two game was in the Section 1 with Dunloy needing a win in West Belfast to at least give them a play-off for a place in the final against Tír na nÓg.

They didn’t make it over the line however in challenging conditions, paying the price for a slack opening half. Rossa led by 1-9 to 0-3 at the break with the goal coming from Caragh Shannon while Natalie McGuinness and Eimear Byrne kept the umpires raising the white flags.

After the break however Dunloy fought their way back into contention and goals from Bronagh Magill, Liza McAllister and Mary Martin levelled the game with just a few minutes left on the clock.

However McGuinness steadied the ship with two late points which put them top of the section on eight points. However Brídíní Óga still have to play Ahoghill and are just a point behind. Victory would put the Glenravel side into the league final, a draw with Ahoghill would mean a play off between Glenravel and Rossa, while a win for Ahoghill would send Rossa through. That remaining game is scheduled for Tuesday 1st September.
